Description: The focus of this session is interest-based negotiation, and ways in which the principles can be used to ensure that your relationship with your supervisor is focused, productive and positive. We’ll begin this half-day session by considering some of the potential challenges in students/supervisor relationships, using pre-recorded vignettes and facilitated discussion. We will then move on to appreciate the elements of a productive mentoring relationship, and hear about some positive situations that have been satisfying for both everyone involved. Dr. Krank will introduce the interest-based negotiation model, and suggest ways in which you can apply the model during your time in graduate school…and beyond.
